Bintan is a gorgeous island with a 1,700-year long history.
In 2000, LooLa was its first international resort, so we could pick Bintan's most beautiful spot .... it was love at first sight!
We're still in love, and our dedicated local staff keeps enhancing the beauty of LooLa and our environment.
LooLa and Sustainability
Our guests often ask us:
Can we make our stay both fun and meaningful?
The answer is a big YES !
Built in 2000, LooLa is run by our fully local staff, who help our guests engage with the local community. They will be very happy to bring you on a a quick eco tour to share LooLa's sustainability features, but also to show you how you can make your holiday in LooLa into a life-changing carbon-positive one!
You can email us to find out how many trees you must plant to make your trip carbon neutral. With the answer in hand, you can then ask our staff to help you select healthy mangrove seedlings and subsequently plant them –planting mangroves at night between the spooky trees is a blast for the whole family! If you are a group of 5 or more people, we will buy a magnificent Nazava water filter as part of your package. This filter will provide clean drinking water for life to a local family. We very much encourage you to meet the family and deliver the filter in person, so you can jointly understand and celebrate the key importance of clean water. You will leave Bintan knowing that your family had an amazing time, while you made a true difference for a local family whom you could stay in touch with!
Please contact us for more details if you're keen to make an active eco-difference – we are keen to see you succeed in this.
